India Defends CAA, Calls US Remarks Misplaced

| Updated: March 15, 2024 19:51

India has firmly rejected the United States’ comments on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), terming them as “misplaced, misinformed and unwarranted.” The country reiterated that the Act is an internal matter, reflecting India’s inclusive traditions and its long-standing commitment to human rights.

The United States had expressed concerns about the notification of the CAA in India and stated that it was closely monitoring its implementation. In response, MEA Spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal addressed a press briefing, emphasising that the CAA 2019 is an internal matter of India.

“The Act provides a safe haven to persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh who belong to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Parsi and Christian communities and have entered India on or before December 31, 2014,” Jaiswal explained. He stressed that the CAA is about granting citizenship, not taking it away.

In response to the US State Department’s statement on the implementation of the CAA, Jaiswal stated, “We believe it is misplaced, misinformed and unwarranted.”

Jaiswal further highlighted that India’s constitution guarantees freedom of religion to all its citizens. “There are no grounds for any concern or treatment of minorities. Vote bank politics should not determine views about a commendable initiative to help those in distress,” he added.

He concluded by saying that “lectures by those who have a limited understanding of India’s pluralistic traditions and the region’s post-partition history are best not attempted.” He urged partners and well-wishers of India to welcome the intent with which this step has been taken.
